    Hi all, I'm considering buying the Pana 25 1.4 as my first native prime. I know the cashback offer is on until the end of year in the UK, but I'm also going to Hong Kong end of Jan 2013. At the moment, the price in HK is slightly cheaper than in the UK, with the cashback.

    My question is:

    Shall I buy it now with cashback? Is it worth waiting until Boxing day or even January, as there might be sales on the lens? (UK users, do you recall any price drop last year?)

    Or shall I just get it in Hong Kong in Jan 2013?

    Thank you!

    As there probably isnt a lot in it - why not buy now and get the UK guarantee as I assume you are UK based.

    If you're willing to look around on eBay, they usually go between £300-£350.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed, it's a very nice lens. Fast focus, 50mm equivalent, great in low light, very sharp. :cool:

    If you buy now, you'll have it for all of the holidays to use, otherwise you'll miss Christmas and New Years.

    Great lens! I bought mine at B&H Photo as they usually have deals.
